The European Commission has recommended launching accession talks with Serbia and pre-accession talks with Kosovo after a deal last Friday on normalising relations. Kosovar Serbs rejected the pact. Swedish FM Carl Bildt on Monday remarked: "Implementation will not be easy, but I think the rubicon has been crossed."
